The Glen

Glen of mystery and tranquillity
nesting between the foothills
a place of peace and serenity
with water flowing through

Trickling and tinkering down
flowing into transparent pool
a waft of long stemmed flowers
bow their heads to the breeze

Fat brown trout leaping
full of Spring joy cavorting
while dragonflies dance
skimming the surface

And so this place Heralds
in Spring and delights
in warm breezy days
while busy birds build nests

Once more the glen lives
evidence and promises
abound in its protection
as Spring comes to stay

    WOW...Shadow, I'm such a slug! I wish my brain worked like this. I would LOVE to be able to write poetry like this. But alas, I sense you SEE, HEAR, FEEL this Glen. I need to spend more time observing...outside, in the wilds of our world! Thanks...this is a FAVORITE!
